OK you will get me in a big fight again but I have this thing going on with the BF guys in the Regional So Cal thread about Tustin and Irvine... although each is right next door they are miles apart in other ways. I am from Tustin... I refused to be from Irvine.. even when I lived in Irvine!

Mine has always been there - - with a modifier depending on the season. I affectionately refer to our little corner at the edge of the known universe as the Greater Tum Tum area.

Well, now, I don't live in SF, proper, mind you, but I'm not sure how typical my little corner of the world is either

Interesting. From an astrophysics theoretical perspective, every point in the universe posseses the characteristic of "centerness". Yep, West [Occupied] Virginia is at the center of the known universe, too. 'Course if you know about the place you'll agree I'll bet. . .the US' best kept secret!

No, it is not our border security, but yours. As for our fierce fight, you could destroy our military in a morning. But we would fiercely resist your occupation (where have I heard that before). We would write nasty letters. Eventually, in perhaps 50 years, you would make us a state and grant us citizenship, then we would vote for candidates for president who would otherwise have lost (the 2050 equivalent of Gore or Kerry). We would have the balance of power! That would really piss you off. So, it is not worth it.

Nope. If we give legal citizenship to the 30 million or so illegal immigrants from south of the border, they will have the balance of power, and could markedly change our society.

I like to say that I live 8 miles from where we rivet together Boeing 747s, and snap and glue together Boeing 787s. If you are missing your carbon fiber, Boeing has it.

You have only to move to So Cal to know that you don't have to grant legal status to the illegal immigrants for them to have the power... I can no longer walk into any store or use any device, phone ATM that I am not first asked something in spanish... Society here is already remarkedly changed! I feel like I am the foreigner. I can go on and on and on... but well just won't. Don't get me started! Yes I am an angry, grumpy old woman!

I've always listed mine. When people mention they rode in warm weather this time of year I want to know where that is......it sure isn't around here. They're predicting 28F Friday morning with 15 mph winds and I have a bike ride scheduled

Eugene Oregon, 100 miles south of Portland.

That's Eugene in the picture, to the west is the Coast Range, then the Pacific Ocean in the top of the frame. Beautiful and hilly riding between Eugene and the beaches.

DnvrFox,

I'm just a few miles NW of where you live. I haven't posted here much, still getting used to the place as I lurk and learn. I posted a question about needing a softer bike a while back and got some good feedback. Wound up buying a Specialized Roubaix and fitting it with a Brooks Swift seat and it has made a huge difference to my riding enjoyment.

One of my regular rides goes east on the C-470 trail and then south on the Cherry Creek trail, right by your place. It's a nice ride except for the traffic lights near Park Meadows Mall.

I rode up Deer Creek and High Grade to Pleasant Park last Saturday and didn't feel like I'd been run over by a truck when I got home. 53 miles round trip from my front door. That High Grade road is about as steep as I care to tackle right now.

My favorite pie is blueberry...

Best Regards,
Ted

I lived in Salt Lake County until three years ago, when my area was annexed by Murray city. Taxes have been rising, and services falling, ever since. They do take quite good care of their section of the Jordan parkway Trail, though.

I used to live at Holly and Orchard.

I have done the Deer Creek and High Grade thingy just once, and that was enough by me. I got buzzed by motorcycles doing at least 80 mph (or so it seemed to me!).

We are the subdivision just east of the new Pine Lane Bridge. If you pass the Parker Rec Center, you have just passed where I live.

If you see a Fred on a yellow Lemond BA with a huge red wedge, say "Hi!" as you pass me.
